As if sacrificing himself to end Lo Pan's reign wasn't enough, Jack Burton must now face his greatest challenge yet: the Hell of No Return. Luckily, Jack does have one companion in this eternity of endless torment. The very person he offed to get here, Lo Pan. When arch nemesis becomes forced ally, Hell becomes the least of Jack's problems.  From legendary John Carpenter, director of the original classic, Eric Powell (The Goon) and Brian Churilla (The Secret History of D.B. Cooper) comes Jack Burton and the Hell of No Return!

LOL, This short graphic novel series keeps on getting more and more hilarious in each volume and I am started to enjoy each volume. Now I know this graphic novel is not for every reader and that is ok I didn't like the first volume that much, but you know what I got used to this series and started to enjoy it a lot. Now I don't love it as much but I do highly enjoy reading it so much. If I feel that I need a book to help me have a really good laugh from a bad or stressful day I will most definitely go and pick up and read Big Trouble in Little China graphic novel series. I loved and enjoyed the movie so much when I was a little kid that I remember every detail about it, now I know there are going to make a sequel about Big Trouble in Little China and I still don't know how I feel about it yet. But I probably won't mind watching the sequel when it comes out of course it won't be my favorite like the cult classic favorite film of mine of Big Trouble in Little China but I still want to watch the sequel film and see how I feel about it. But I am enjoying this silly, very fun and very wacky graphic novel that I can't get enough of it and I am starting to love the graphic designs in each volume more and more. All and all I can't wait to read the next volume of Big Trouble in Little China graphic novel because Jack, Pete, and Egg are in a bit of a pickle at the end of this graphic novel and I want to know what happens next to them.
